Woman fined for illegal club operation

     A woman was fined $4,000 at the Eastern Magistrates' Courts today (February 16) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

     The courts heard that in July last year, officers from the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA) of the Home Affairs Department conducted an inspection at a club on Hennessy Road in Causeway Bay, which had been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC). The club's staff failed to show a copy of the certificate of fire services installations and equipment and the registered drawings upon the OLA officers' request. Conditions 10 and 17 of the CoC were breached.

     The woman, being the CoC holder of the club, was charged with contravening section 21(2) of the Ordinance.

     A spokesman for the department reminded all CoC holders to comply with the conditions as stipulated therein. Enforcement action would continue to be taken against illegal club operations.
